Korg today officially introduced AudioPocket – an audio sampler for iOS that’s designed for capturing samples for use with the recently announced Volca Sample.
The Volca Sample – the latest member of the Volca line – is a sample mangler, playback device & sequencer. To keep costs down, though, it doesn’t not have built-in sampling capabilities. Instead, samples are managed using the AudioPocket app.
The need for an audio sampling app has been the most divisive aspect of the new Volca Sample. For musicians that don’t use iOS, the Volca Sample is limited to playing the default samples. There’s no word yet from Korg on whether AudioPocket will be available for other platforms.
AudioPocket is ‘coming soon’. More information on the Volca Sample is available at the Korg site.
